Help Load bikes (Bikes for the world)

Help load a container of up to 500 bicycles, destined for a program providing employment and access to school in Africa, Central America, or the Philippines. No mechanic experience necessary!

Volunteers who want to help at a collection or event do NOT need prior experience with bike mechanics. We need people who can help donors unload bikes, pass out information, receive financial donations, and write receipts. We also need volunteers who don't mind getting a little dirty or using a pedal wrench.

 

Keith, the director, will be there and in charge of the bike collection. He will show you exactly what to do with the bikes when they come in. He will be set up under some type of glass structure that I believe is typically over theice rink. His number, if you need to reach him Sunday is [masked]


If you are unable to find us, call me (Sushma) at[masked]

    Unless my knee hurts more than I expect it to after the surgery I'll be there ( assuming Keith has a position that I can do while sitting)

      I'm feeling great and can drive as of tomorrow morning so I'm ready and willing to help ...but will still call you to make sure there are sit down jobs - loading bikes would not be smart even though I'm feeling great!!!

    Sushma: I am having minor knee surgery on June 21, but believe I should be able to drive by Sunday morning. Assuming that is the case I could help as long as I sit down!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
